When the roads are frozen over in ice, our Highway Tire Chains are designed to provide you with steady and reliable traction to help get the vehicle to where it needs to go. ...
Made from high strength/hardened carbon steel, these tire chains are engineered to provide optimal strength and durability to give your tires the right amount of traction to make it over such hazardous terrain.
The Highway Tire Chains come in two styles: the V-Bar Tire Chains and the Square Link Tire Chains. Each has their own method of gaining traction over rough terrain, but both are engineered with highly durable cross links that are designed to provide optimal grip.
Easy to install and easy to remove, it’s a good idea to have these tire chains at the ready in your truck whenever you hit those icy roads. To help make storage easier, the chains come in reusable pails that you can store in your vehicle.

V-Bar Tire Chains
To help gain such great traction, the studs on the V-Bar Tire Chains act as mini icepicks. They dig directly into the snow or ice and provide enough traction to propel the tires forward. Built for both strength and durability, if the road is covered in slippery ice, these icepicks can easily penetrate it deep. Use these Tire Chains to help gain enough traction on the snow or ice to keep you in control of your vehicle.
These V-Bar Tire Chains are available in 11 x 22.5 and 11 x 24.5 singles and 11 x 22.5 and 11 x 24.5 dual-triples. We’ve engineered the V-Bar with 14 cross links per tire chain, which is 0.28 inches (7 millimeters) diameter steel wire. There are four tensioning cams located on each chain set for easy tightening and loosening.
One set of singles comes in one white pail which weighs between 66 and 70 Lbs. (29.9 and 31.7 Kgs.). One set of dual triples comes 1/2 pair per white pail (two pails required for one set) and weighs between 118 and 126 Lbs. (53.5 and 57.1 Kgs.).
Square Link Tire Chains
The Square Link Tire Chains are designed to cover more ground, offering a stronger bite into the snow or ice covering the roadway. They maintain great traction and a strong grip by cutting through the deep snow and tough ice as they provide more contact on the road. Built to last long with enhanced durability, the Square Link Tire Chains are engineered for aggressive traction in harsh conditions.
We’ve engineered the Square Link Tire Chains in the following sizes: 11 x 22.5 and 11 x 24.5 singles and 11 x 22.5 and 11 x 24.5 dual-triples. In order to obtain such traction, the Square Link Tire Chains are engineered with 14 cross links chains per tire chain. The chain and the side wall chain are made of 0.28 inches (7 millimeters) diameter steel wire. There are four easy-to-reach tensioning cams located on each chain set.
One set of singles comes in one orange pail which weighs between 67 and 72 Lbs. (30.4 and 32.6 Kgs.). One set of dual triples comes 1/2 pair per orange pail (two pails required for one set and weighs between 122 and 130 Lbs. (55.3 and 59.0 Kgs.).
